Another thing the OP might try is to check that Privoxy is installed
and running.  I don't know if its the same for other proxies but its a
matter which I've taken up with the developers of Privoxy.

Starting with Ubuntu 9.10 ("Karmic"), each time I start or reboot my PC
(a ShuttleX) I have to manually restart Privoxy like this:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/privoxy start

Hope this is a pointer to what might be going wrong.....
